Why does systme info list 61 hours of HD? I thought this unit had a 500G drive.

A quick note about the UI: It is standard definition, no matter what resolution you pick.

On Demand and other network stuff is there, but it's still loading so I couldn't take a picture of it.

One big thing to note... the peanut remote has no POWER button, so you have to go into standby through the menus, or from the front panel, or deal with the blue light ring (since you can't turn it off.)

Thanks for the quick look, Stuart. My only question is, is it faster than the HR22-100 running the blue UI? Mine is dog-slow compared to the rest of the boxes in the house.

SOP for Tivo. It is like they are discouraging you from putting the unit in standby.
Perhaps I Misremembered.

Shame the TiivoHD GUI isn't being used. My brother has an HD Tivo, and the GUI is really sweet.

How about an edited back panel shot?


Looks exactly the same as an HR22-100

Edit: Here's a shot. Forgive the dust, it gets VERY dusty here on the beach (and it collects fast... it's a vicious cycle!) Also of note, you may not notice right away, but the network connection is via DECA adapter, which works just fine. I'm using Component here because I have this in a dual-setup with an H24 currently while I figure out a good location for it.

Are there any other guide views? That guide is atrocious. How about a nice big grid?

Thanks for the quick first look!

The TiVo GUI still uses SD menus for Settings, Season Passes, To Do List, etc. It's a shame they haven't updated the entire GUI - it's annoying when it throws from HD to SD and back as you work through menus. But that's not the point of this thread, so at least we did get confirmation visually from the First Pictures that the SD menu is what you'll get from the start!

I am in the process of building the first look with all new screen caps.

There are the same two guide options as with every TiVo, the Grid Guide and the TiVo-style guide. They look just like they do on an HR10.

By popular request here's the other guide picture. I apologize for the quality, it's a screencap of a slingbox AV. Best I could do this morning.

The Playlist with logos and deleted items folder would be a more exciting picture... :P

That being said, I'm currently in the process of recording "Live With Kelly!" on KABC (ABC7) this morning as my cousin was in the audience, so it's kind of cool to see that snapshot... plus, I'm always jealous seeing someone's guide with a CW-HD affiliate on it. :rolleyes: :( :mad:

It was the same thing with the HDVR2. Why would you want to put it in Stand By?


I always put my TiVos in Stand By... that being said, as annoying as the "Stand By" function being an option within another menu was to me when I got my first stand-alone TiVo, I got used to the extra step pretty quickly. Before long, I didn't even think about it... it just came naturally.

Patience, grasshopper. I have to actually record something then delete it for that to happen.

There is a catch on the cost. I had heard the cost is much higher per month then a HR series. Also it looks like whole room network is not supported. Maybe the THR24 may have this feature later on?
